LSU-Tennessee set for Sept. 24 on ESPN

LSU's game against Tennessee on Sept. 24 in Tiger Stadium will be televised by ESPN and will carry at 6:45 p.m. start time, the Southeastern Conference announced on Monday.

The matchup against the fourth-ranked Vols will serve as LSU's home-opener as the Tigers had to travel to face Arizona State last weekend. LSU's original season-opening game against North Texas was postponed due to Hurricane Katrina and has since been re-scheduled for Oct. 29 in Tiger Stadium.

The league office also announced that CBS has exercised its six-day window for picking their game on Sept. 24. CBS will select either the Arkansas at Alabama contest or the Florida at Kentucky game.

Jefferson-Pilot will televise the game not selected by CBS, while the Georgia-Mississippi State contest will be televised by ESPN2.
